1 Separate broccolini (or broccoli) stems from florets. Place florets and 1 cup of the cauliflower in a food processor and blend until mixture resembles rice. Set aside.
2 Combine broccolini stems and remaining cauliflower with potato, onions, garlic, thyme, stock, milk and parmesan in a large saucepan. Add boiling water and bring mixture to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until soup thickens slightly and vegetables are tender.
3 Remove saucepan from heat. Purée soup with a stick blender until smooth. Return saucepan to a medium heat. Add reserved broccolini-cauliflower mixture and simmer for 3 more minutes or until soup is heated through.
